    Do Adorama have shit tons of stock or are they still in production? Are Focal secretly still producing them? Or maybe no one is buying the old stock.

    Quite a few things on sale at Drop currently - some discounts are new, some not so new. Highlights include HD6XX at $219 down from $279; Elex at $599 down from $799; ER2SE at $70 down from $160 (although these are ~$100 in other places).

    MEE Audio balanced MMCX / 2.5mm cable with 4-pole (ie balanced; rare) & 3-pole (SE) 3.5mm, and balanced 4.4mm (pentacon) adaptors, $40 at Drop:

    https://drop.com/buy/mee-audio-mmcx-balanced-audio-cable-with-adapters

    I've had one of these for a while, and have used it with a few different earphone pairs. It's a little bit stiff but not inconveniently so, and is not massive and thick. The 4.4mm adaptor can be fiddly but the other plugs, including the MMCX connectors, seem fine.

    Construction is silver-plated copper, probably nothing special; sonically nothing positive or negative jumped out at me. What makes it well worth the $40 IMO (vs $100 direct from MEE) is the versatility you get with the adaptor set.

    I wanted to bring your attention to this ebay seller Dr.bag. I bought a 12AV5 sweep tube amp and matching preamp pair from him 10 years ago. Still works flawlessly and wonderful sound. But his skills and parts choices do appear to have improved. He uses oddball tubes that are inexpensive and easy to obtain too so the tube cost is low. He builds the amps or whatever and listens to them for months before he sells them so you know they will work. I recommend you give these a look.

    You can obtain any of these tubes inexpensively from here .....

    Hopefully worth mentioning that Kinki Studio will be raising their prices by Oct. 1. If anybody was hesitating to purchase one of these I want to say that my experience is that the EX-M7 is one of the best power amps I have ever heard. If I was a reasonable man I would sell my $10K boutique power amp and buy a set of Kinki monos. Just a heads up if anyone was considering any of their products. They're excellent, and prices are going to increase very soon.

    Don't know if this qualifies as a 'deal' per se, but after trying two Chinese HD800 replacement headband pads that didn't fit, I came across this: Amazon.com: Desing Wish Universal Replacement Headphone Headband Cover, Headband Cushion Pad Cover Compatible with Sony, Bose, Beats, JBL Head Band Protector for Noise Canceling Stereo Headset (Silver Grey) : Electronics

    It fits the 800's like the proverbial glove, and even has a loop to hang the 'phones. I stuck mine right over the stocker, and am a happy boy. It fits nice and snug with no sliding around. Sennheiser's replacement parts dept. never has the stockers in stock, and after installing this cover, I will probably just stick with it.
